At the time of Koyannisqatsi's release, I was an announcer on the L.A. classical station KFAC. I interviewed Godfrey Reggio and Philip Glass for a promotional piece I was airing.
At that time, I also attended one of the dubbing sessions for the film. It was done in the middle of the night and I know Glass was there, and I'm certain Fricke was there too. However, I don't recall meeting him.
I watched one scene that was about 3 minutes long about fifty times, so that aspect of the movie became very hypnotic. And departing at about 3:30 am from the session was an ethereal experience.
I just watched Baraka last night, and it was breathtaking. This morning, I sent an e-mail to all of my contacts, urging them to see it. It is a life-changing experience.
Really looking forward to Samsara!
